We took a ride across town to a Apple store to exchange our watchbands on our Christmas apple watches. It need up being a 35 mile round trip. Lots of climbing on the way there. 1600 feet. One street was 16: for about two blocks then turned into 20% just made it up two blocks then back to 14% even on a e tandem 20% is really hard. Some pics of the Willamette river from different locations we coursed two different bridges. A old sub at OMSI and mt hood from about 65 miles away. last pics the road looked worse in person
Indeed. Today I swapped out the stock tires for knobby Kenda tires inflated to 2.5/3bar (f/r). Worked great at crossing large patches of frozen, hard packed snow and a bit of mixed ice. Even at 22mph. Very nice to have a Class 3 Wabash!
Was able to do a 36 km ride today, putting me over 6000 km since July. That’s an equal distance to riding across Canada! Unexpected to be able to ride like that on January 15 in Ontario. We are in Covid lockdown again here, so traffic was pretty light everywhere. I was surprised to find our nearby Provincial Park open.
